    My 24 x 30 Morton Building Storage Shed

    I had a big open storage shed, about 48 x 60 that collapsed winter of '10. I was just finishing up my 30 x 40 tractor garage (Hmm. I need to post those pix some day, I know Randy likes pix).

    At any rate, I've got a new storage shed going in where the old one was and here's the story. The structure went up in 2 days, next step is the concrete.

    So here is the "before" shot. It was a lot of work dismantling and removing the old shed. The locals scavenged the roof and trusses, but I still had a lot of work this last winter getting things "back to the earth".

    So the materials were delivered, and the corners marked. The crew then marked where each post would be so they could drill the hole.

    The, the posts are put in the hole. You can see the support at the bottom of the post that both lets the concrete be the pad the post rests on and it helps (a little) anchor the post in the concrete. After the concrete is added (just enough to barely cover the post bottom), dirt is put in and tamped down.

    By the end of the day, the skeleton was done.

    Next day started with the skin going on. Here's a close up of the soffet detail that makes things a bit less boxy.

    I also put two conduits in, one for AC and one for low voltage. The pipes dead-end with caps on the about 6' out from the building. They are down 2.5 feet. Easier to do this now and have the pipes come up through the slab than to try to kludge in later.

    The slab is 5 1/2" thick with wire mesh. I'm putting in some rebar on my own, mostly 1/2". I want it by where the slab meets the apron since the keyway in the concrete makes that a weak point (less area to spread the load). I also wanted something across the entire slab since all slabs want to crack in the middle. There will also be rebar under where the wheels of things will be in case that want to crack. Finally, the apron will have rebar all around it, and mesh, and will have 4 rebar that tie it into the slab so it doesn't move away.

    I can get away with a lot down here in the south that would never fly in the snow belt as far as slabs on the ground and how much gravel you need under them. A 5" frost line makes life easy.

    In the first shot, you saw the green machine and boxblade used to grade the site. Here's another tractor shot.

    Now before everyone gets upset about the color, remember I used my JD 4520 with TnT and the box blade to get the grade at the site ready. Here's a close up (when it was all new).

    Pad pour is tomorrow, will have more pix.

    Looking good Pete!
    Looks like you have buildings popping up all over your property. I hope those doors are good and tall, 10 foot? And yep, gotta love the pics.

    The doors are 12' wide by 9' tall. Enough for any SCUT and a few other things. As with all projects, it's so easy to go over budget by just making everything a little bit bigger, taller, wider, etc. The doors on my tractor garage are 10 x 10 and 12 x 8.5'. I wish I had know that there were 9' doors available back then. For some reason, the jump to a 12 wide by 10 tall was a big one. Doors on the garage to the house are 8' 3", there's a story there....

    So all doors I have can park a 4x20 tractor, and there is some room to spare.

    But, there is enough room next to this to build a 40 x 60 shed so at least there is a plan 'B'...

    Looking good Pete, and thank you for extending the soffit out from the walls all the way around as it makes the building look so much better.

    Will a welder go in there? Hint...hint...
    I have more ideas than ambition.
